Laforest, Thomas J., Our French Canadian Ancestors, Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre, 1984 


Pierre Tremblay - The Tremblay name originates in France in the Normandy region. The earliest known Tremblay is Bernard de Tremblay who died in 1155.  Next we find records in 1167 of a Guillaume de Tremblay who made a gift of a vast domain of land to the Trappist monastery. Then we skip to Gervais du Tremblay, a blacksmith, who built a forge on lands adjoining the Trappist monastery in Tourouvre, Perche, France.  His descendants continued in this occupation in some line for several generations. One Tremblay of distinction is Father Joseph Tremblay, a man of great influence in the Richelieu administration in the early 1600's..  He was known as the confidant and lifelong associate of one of France's greatest statesman (Quarterly Review, April 1896). 
The forefather of Tremblay's in the New World was Pierre Tremblay. He was born at Saint-Malo de Randonnai about 1626. 
He came to Canada in August 1647.  We are the largest family in North America that can trace their ancestry to one man.

My understanding is that the Tremblay and Tromblay names are interchangeable. That they all are descendents of Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon who came to Canada in the early 1600's. I am doing some research on the Tromblay name in the United States; namely a Shirley June Tromblay (3 June 1927-3 November 2010) who married Clifton Edward Newton (19 January 1914-22 February 1991). I have Shirley Tromblay as the daughter of Maurice Tromblay (22 June 1904-8 August 1982), Maurice the son of William Peter Tromblay (28 February 1859-29 May 1943), the son of Peter Tromblay (1827-?). I'm wondering what the connection to Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon would be. Would appreciate any information you could provide. Thank you.
